India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was dismissed for a duck in the World Cup match against England. England’s fast bowlers, David Willey and Chris Woakes, took early wickets to put India in a difficult position. Kohli played a loose shot and was caught by Ben Stokes at mid-off. This was a surprising dismissal that left the stadium in stunned silence. Kohli is just one century away from equaling Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI hundreds. He has been in good form throughout the tournament, scoring significant runs in previous matches. However, this was his 16th duck in ODIs out of 275 innings. England elected to bowl first and Woakes also dismissed opener Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer, causing India to struggle at 40-3 in 12 overs. England, currently in last place, are aiming for a win to keep their slim hopes of reaching the semi-finals alive.
